Marlins at Phillies 9/27/19 - MLB Picks & Predictions

NL East Division foes will clash on Friday night, when the Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies open up a series from Citizens Bank Park. Last night, Miami rallied for four runs over the final two innings of a 4-2 road victory against New York. Curtis Granderson connected on a solo shot to put the Marlins ahead for good.

Twenty-three year old righty Pablo Lopez (5-8 4.96 ERA) will head to the hill for the Marlins in this contest. In his last start, Lopez gave up three runs in five innings during a 5-3 home victory versus Washington.

The Philadelphia Phillies have lost six games in a row and have been eliminated from postseason contention. On Thursday, Philadelphia batters struck out 15 times during a 6-3 road loss against Washington. Bryce Harper went hitless in four at-bats and struck out three times in a losing effort for the Phillies.

Hard-throwing righty Vince Velasquez (7-8 4.76 ERA) has been inconsistent for the Phillies this season. Through 113 plus innings, Velasquez has surrendered 25 home runs and owns a 1.38 WHIP.

Philadelphia C J.T. Realmuto will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. Through 159 games, Miami ranks 30th in OPS and 29th in runs scored. For the season, Philadelphia ranks 18th in OPS and 17th in runs scored. Take the Marlins to score another win as a nicely priced underdog. Final Score Prediction, Miami Marlins 5-3.
